BIBLE: Useful for all things human!

BIBLE BLOOPERS #2: [Matthew 5:13]

From Swedish fruit to Liberty's assualt, we see the patent and pathetic biblical ignorance of the secular media in this country.

I recently posted on Senator Brownback's humorous run-in with Rolling Stone magazine concerning his quote of Matthew 7:16 and their presupposing a gay slur.

Now we have Newsweek's mia culpa ...

Correction: In the original version of this report, NEWSWEEK misquoted Falwell as referring to "assault ministry." In fact, Falwell was referring to "a salt ministry"—a reference to Matthew 5:13, where Jesus says "Ye are the salt of the earth." We regret the error.
That's hilarious, where can I enlist for that ministry?

Soon we'll see the LA Times report Japanese auto manufacturers get model names from the Bible. For example ...
The city was filled with the confusion, and they rushed with one Accord into the theater, dragging along Gaius and Aristarchus, Paul's traveling companions from Macedonia.
Acts 19:29
And it came about in the month Nisan, in the twentieth year of King Artaxerxes, that wine was before him, and I took up the wine and gave it to the king.
Nehemiah 2:1

BIBLE BLOOPERS #1: [Matthew 7:16; other topics - Word, Scripture]

A Rolling Stone gathers no fruits; at least that's the story over at KLASTV. Their story says Rolling Stone magazine was "puzzled" by US Senator Brownback's use of Scripture in an interview with the dead tree publication.
It isn't every day you see the Bible quoted in Rolling Stone magazine, but Senator Sam Brownback's reference to Jesus' words appears to have been misunderstood.

In an article titled "God's Senator," Rolling Stone quotes the Kansas Republican as lamenting the fate of countries like Sweden that have legalized gay marriage. Brownback says -- quote -- "You'll know them by their fruits."
KLASTV says an awkard silence followed the senator's statement. Evidently they thought the senator was referring to homosexual Swedes as "fruits." How do we know he wasn't?

[NOTE: the words, spoken by Jesus, actually warn of false prophets who are easily recognized "by their deeds (fruits)" Matt. 7:16]

The Wonkette says, "Sometimes a banana is just a banana."
